However it was only in 2004 that Phuoc turned professional and was discovered by Hoang Quy Phuoc Coach Phan Van Toai, head of the Swimming Department of the Da Nang Sports Training centre.

He made great progress under his coach and in May 2006 was selectd for the national youth swimming team and just a year later in 2007 he became a member of the national team. Phuoc won two golds, three silvers and two bronze medals at the Southeast Asian Youth Age Group Championships. He also won eight more golds in the Southeast asian Clubs Championships. At the national diving and swimming competition Phuoc became the youngest swimmer to break a national record even competing with swimmers senior to him.

Gradually Phuoc proved to be a great hope for the Vietnamese swimming clubs. At the 6th National Sports Games in 2010, Phuoc won nine gold medals with six individual golds, broke nine national records in the 25m pool and then won 13 gold medals and 13 national records in the 50m pool.

With so much dedication and determination, Phuoc is likely to become a great swimmer for Vietnam and we hope that he will fare really well in the Olympic, 2012.
